Clinical outcomes and spinal growth after posterior hemivertebra resection and short segment fusion in children – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article, published in Scientific Reports, investigates the corrective effect of posterior hemivertebra resection and short-segment fusion surgery on pediatric patients. The study analyzed 28 pediatric patients who underwent the surgery and evaluated the impact on vertebral development during follow-up. The results showed a correction rate of 72.2% for segmental scoliosis. The study also measured and compared vertebral and spinal canal development and found that internal fixation at a young age had no significant inhibitory effects on spinal development within the fusion segment. The authors concluded that posterior hemivertebra resection and short-segment fusion surgery are safe and effective for pediatric patients

ABSTRACT

To evaluate the corrective effect of posterior hemivertebra resection and short-segment fusion surgery on pediatric patients and to assess the impact of short-segment fixation surgery on vertebral development during follow-up, a retrospective analysis was performed on 28 pediatric patients who underwent posterior hemivertebra resection surgery. The corrective effect was evaluated by comparing indicators such as segmental scoliosis Cobb angle, upper and lower compensatory curves and trunk balance at different time points. Meanwhile, the vertebral and spinal canal diameters of instrumented vertebrae and adjacent noninstrumented vertebrae were measured and compared to assess vertebral and spinal canal development. The correction rate of segmental scoliosis was 72.2%. The estimated mean vertebral volume of the instrumented vertebra was slightly lower than that of the unfused segment at the final follow-up, but the difference was not statistically significant. The growth rate of the spinal canal during follow-up was much smaller than that of the vertebral body. In summary, internal fixation at a young age shows no significant inhibitory effects on spinal development within the fusion segment. Posterior hemivertebra resection and short-segment fusion surgery are safe and effective.
